Elvis Presley Only Believe

This is cool. This hymn was written by my boys' great-grandfather, (Daniel) Paul Rader. I was able to find it recorded by Presley on an import a couple of years ago. It is reported to have been one of Elvis' favorite songs while he was stationed in Germany.

Hi Debi,

I am writing from the UK and am currently looking for any living relative of Daniel Paul Rader. I was drawn to your blog because you mentioned that the hymn 'Only Believe' was 'written by my boys' great-grandfather, (Daniel) Paul Rader.'

My reason for looking is because he was a famous preacher, who visited Britain just before his death in 1938. He made some films in the UK and took the footage back to the USA. I am currently looking to see if anyone knows where these films are or if they might be a box somewhere with these films in. My email address is johnenglish2004@hotmail.com

Thanks for taking the time to read this,
